Supreme Court Will Finally Decide Today- Read Details On What Is To Happen

The much-anticipated Election 2020 Petition trial will be decided by Ghana’s Supreme Court today, March 4.

Chief Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah presided over the seven-member panel, which had asked lawyers for the parties in the case to file their closing written addresses.

The closing addresses for the Petitioner (former President John Dramani Mahama), the First Respondent (the Electoral Commission), and the Second Respondent (President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo) had all been filed.

Dr Michael Kpessa Whyte, Mr Joseph Robert Mettle-Nunoo, both members of the National Democratic Congress, and Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the Party’s General Secretary, were the three witnesses called by the Petitioner.

The Supreme Court will decide whether there are any legal grounds for the petition and whether President Akufo-Addo has met the Article 63(3) threshold set out in the 1992 Constitution.

Before a presidential candidate can be declared president-elect, he or she must receive 50% of the total valid votes cast plus one vote, according to Article 63(3).

It will also determine whether the EC’s declaration on December 9, 2020 was in violation of Article 63(3), as well as whether the Petitioner’s allegations of vote padding and other errors influenced the outcome of the presidential election on December 9, 2020.

The Supreme Court dismissed the Petitioner’s applications to have the Electoral Commission Chairperson, Mrs Jean A. Mensa, mount the witness box.
